The new campaign from the New Hampshire Food Bank may mess with your head a little bit - at least when you first hear about it.

They are asking you, next time you go to the grocery store, to buy nothing. A whole can of nothing, in fact.

It’s part of a nationwide effort to bring more attention to hunger and the many people who actually face eating nothing.

Shawna Frechette of the New Hampshire Food Bank tells All Things Considered host Brady Carlson more about the campaign.
